Do you ever get a feeling when you see an amazing picture, maybe a bit of Deja vu, maybe some goosebumps for some unknown reason, that you’ve been there before or the photos you are looking at come from some other worldly place. I knew when I first saw Sreejith’s work that he has an amazing eye. Very few photographers are able to catch the moment with such realism and yet with a bit of mystery. I am so honored to present his work and blog here on “Life in Russia”. You can find more of his work here: Santiago the Shepherd
The Gods in Action
Have you ever got a chance to see gods in action?
They descent to earth, dance to the drum beats and talks to you…
It’s sheer magic that unfolds right in front of your eyes when you are watching a “theyyam” dancer performs.
For the believers,
it’s not the mortal human being, in one of the most striking costumes and facial paintings,
in front of them, But the god himself.
Being born and brought up in this beautiful and exotic land of Kerala,
I am lucky to witness innumerable theyyam performances.
Let me share a few images from a theyyam performance in a temple near my home.
There is a lot of information available in the cyber world on “Theyyam” and people who are interested can follow the links below.
